Acknowledgements

This book began as a doctoral thesis at the University of Oxford, I am deeply indebted to Jon Mee for his enduring support and insightful guidance. Special thanks are due to Robert J. C. Young who offered much appreciated feedback on numerous drafts, and generously shared his knowledge with me. His input has been key to the preparation of this book. Rajeswari Sunder Rajan and Lyn Innes also kindly read earlier versions of several chapters and provided valuable suggestions. Similarly, I thank my anonymous readers, and at Oxford University Press Andrew MacNeillie, Tom Perridge, and copy-editor Katie Ryde (who by coincidence was interviewed by Tambimuttu for a post at the Lyrebird Press in the 1970s).

I am grateful to the British Academy for funding this doctoral study. Thanks also go to the board of Graduate Studies, Christ Church, Oxford and the Meyerstein Foundation for travel grants, which enabled me to present some of this material at the Third International Conference on Colonialism at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and to visit archives in the US. For their invaluable assistance I thank the librarians at the University of Bristol, Columbia University, Harvard University, Northwestern University, the University of Reading, the BBC Centre for Written Archives, the British Library, the Macmillan Archive, the National Sound Archive, Lake House Newspaper Archives, and the National Archives in Colombo. A special thanks to the late Nirad Chaudhuri, Hanif Kureishi, A. Sivanandan, and Meera Syal for answering my questions and for sharing their unpublished work with me, and to Shakuntala Tambimuttu for persmission to cite her father's correspondence and unpublished work. I am also grateful to the BBC, Random House Group, and Jonathan Cape for permission to quote from their papers. Although every effort has been made to trace copyright holders and establish copyright before printing this has not always been possible. The publisher would be pleased to rectify any omissions or errors brought to their attention at the earliest opportunity. Some of the material on Hanif Kureishi in Chapter 5 has already appeared in Ruvani Ranasinha, Hanif Kureishi: Writers and their Works (Northcote House Publishers, 2002).
